Traditional MS Tuition

Traditional Master's Tuition and Fees

We know that program cost is a crucial consideration and have estimates to share with you. Please be aware that, while the included figures are based on the most accurate information available, they are estimates only and are subject to change at any time. These estimates may not apply to individual students with unique educational paths. Our goal is to provide a snapshot of what you may be able to expect. 

Exact amounts of current tuition and fees can be found in detail on Ohio State’s University Registrar website. You will pay tuition and fees each semester you are enrolled in the program, based on:

  • The number of credit hours you are completing
  • Whether you are enrolled as a part-time or full-time student
  • Your chosen specialty
  • Distance learning or on-campus enrollment for a given semester

A graduate student is charged the full-time rate if they are enrolled in eight (8) credit hours or more per term. The figures below are based on full time, on-campus enrollment for a single semester, however, the cost of enrollment for one (1) to seven (7) credit hours would be prorated based on the hours of enrollment.

Ohio resident by semster $9,682
Non-Ohio resident by semester $22,982

Financial Aid and Scholarships

As a student in the Traditional Master of Science in Nursing program, you are eligible to apply for financial aid. Please visit the Student Financial Aid website to learn more about the options available.

Scholarships offered through the College of Nursing are made available for application each spring semester. Thanks in large part to generous private donors, the College of Nursing has a number of scholarships available. Continuing students are invited to submit the scholarship application to be considered for need-based and/or merit-based scholarships. These funds are limited and preference is given to full-time students who are continuously enrolled.
